First post in awhile. That is what a master's does to one. Anyway, The AOI is an easy pass for me. The droids are nice but the rest are just crap. I won't waste money on something that is not worth it to me. Perhaps on clearance which I bet should happen soon. I do like Felucia and picked one up.

I'm expecting a big clearance on Target's BP's along with their exclusive Transfomers sets that are overflowing at most if not all of my local Targets.

Same here.  I find it funny that after my local Target treated these like gold they could not allow out of their sight (see the Felucia thread for the details on my local Target's incomparable customer service) that, at least in the case of the Ilum and TF sets, they aren't really moving at all.  The Felucia sets came and went fairly quickly, and there are none of them left, but there are at least 10 each of the Ilum and UM/SW sets on the endcaps.  Outside of the Chameleon Droids, the Ilum pack does pretty much suck, but the UM/SW TF set is really nice.

Saw this on clearance today and picked it up. The droids are way bigger than I expected, which is neat. Padme pretty much stinks due to the statue like pose, I can't believe that they were going to make us pay $13 for this figure by itself. I'm glad they used some decent sculpts for the R2 and 3PO also. Overall, I'd say this BP is worth it for the chameleon droids themselves, as they could easily be $10 deluxe figures on their own.

Yeah I saw a lone AOI at Target for $13.98 yesterday. I will definitely see more at other targets, maybe for even lower prices. Im gonna wait at least until theyre 10 bucks to pick my first one up, because thats the most its possibly worth to me.

I must really not like this because I came across the $4.98 clearance yesterday and still passed.  At the same time I'd have added to my 6 Betrayal on Felucia's like crazy at that price.

Actually this week after looking at it, I returned my "Ambush On Ilum".. $20 much better spent on something else..

Found one today hidden behind an inflatable pool, went to check the price and it rang up $0.00.  I asked an employee if she could tell me how much it'd be and she says that once something gets marked down to $0 that it gets donated to Goodwill.  First I'd ever heard this.  Has anybody else heard of this or was she just saying that so she didn't have look it up or whatever?

When things ring up at $0.00, they should be able to look up the last "good" clearance price (usually 15% of the regular price) and sell it to you at that price, but it is true that Target will dump stuff at Goodwill (or similar charity outlets) if there is anything left a few weeks after it hits "final clearance" (usually 75% off).

It is a standard Target practice (or at least it happens quite often here in MN).  That is why sometimes even though a Target that has tons of something on clearance, they all suddenly diappear at times.

Did she give you the pack for free then?

I saw 3 Ambush on illum packs yesterday evening while on a toy run...  All 3 slipped, insert and all, into 3 Tantive IV sets.  I ALMOST bought one for the droids since the Tantive IV set is on clearance anyway. :)  I mean, the $14 for 2 Cham Droids, R2/3PO, and that lame ass Padme isn't a horrid price really.
